What is 'Pay it Forward'?
Pay it forward is where we do/show a random act of kindness to a person or people. Paying it forward is supposed to make the world a better place, because when you help someone and ask them to pay it forward and they do the same thing as you more and more people get helped.

What Was Your Pay it Forward Act of Kindness?

My Pay it forward was sending supplies to children in Kandahar.

Why Did You Chose This Activity?

I decided to do this when I met one of my moms friends, She would often go to Kandahar to either work at a Tim Hortens at the base or volunteer at a hospital. The reason I chose to do this was because I know how good of a life we have here is and how bad life for a kid in Kandahar.

What Did You Do?

My mother and I made some goodie bags that had pencils, stickers, candy canes, chocolate, puzzles, playdoh, cards and some books.
There were some books and puzzles in there for the adults as well as the children.

It went great, it wasn't that hard and it was enjoyable to do, knowing that I was helping somebody.

How Did it Feel and How Did The People React?
Well it felt great helping out someone, however I don't know how they reacted because they're about half way around the world.

Did You Ask Them to Pay it Forward?
No, because I didn't want it to feel as if I did it reluctantly and I didn't want to burden them with a task extremely hard to do when your in a war zone.

How Did They React to Your Request?
I don't know how they reacted for 2 reasons, 1 they're about half way around the world, and 2 I didn't ask them.
